Hi everyone,

I would like to understand how to use a build of blender from
From, it’s easy : I download a build (for Linux/Ubuntu 11.04, 64 bits), unpack it in a new folder, and a double click on the blender file does the trick.

The same (very) simple methode doesn’t work with a package from : nothing happends. I tried with 3 different builds (Linux 64 bits, of course)…
What is the obvious step I’m missing ?


maybe ur system is missing some parts or something like that. normally you can unpack&play the builds as well as the versions

Launch it with a terminal and post the error message.

Of course ! That’s the solution ! Thanks !

So, after a “./blender” the output is

./blender: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

The installation of libavdevice52 solved my problem. Easy…

Thanks again
